Event Information

NASA’s vaults open for the first time to spill this never-before seen collection of audio and 70mm film footage of the Apollo 11 mission. 

The meandering cameras in Cape Canaveral captured a dreamy-eyed portrait of America as it stepped into the future, and from inside the Apollo 11 spacecraft, the amazingly jocular conversation of the astronauts punctuates each stage of the mission with lightness and charm. Director Todd Miller takes you straight to the heart of this intense scientific and human endeavour, sharing the atmosphere and action around the final moments of the preparation, liftoff, landing, and return of the famed moon-landing mission. 

The footage is so clean and vibrant, it’s as if you are standing at the base of the rocket. Exquisitely crafted and realized, this truly immersive experience offers a new look into one of humanity’s greatest achievements, leaving us to marvel at human ingenuity and the impulse that led humanity to space.
